All B.A. (Hons) students in the Visual Arts programme are recommended to undertake an internship within their preferred career area during their time of study.

An internship links classroom theory to professional practice, and provides the student with learning experiences beyond the possibilities of the BA (Hons) programme. The experience can be very helpful in establishing and/or verifying one’s career intentions and is valuable for one’s professional and personal development, in general.

Internships are organised by the student with an institutional body related to the cultural and/or creative sector. The nature of work performed by the intern during the internship should reflect a reasonable professional level in design, visual arts, arts administration or the equivalent.

Interested students, please download the Visual Arts Internship application form from Intranet and submit it to the AVA General Office before the commencement of the internship.
